Lyrically told, and with some fine magic and mythology infusing the story, The Billow Maiden is a thoughtful story that gently explores dealing with sadness with a fittingly happy resolution.

Ailsa is used to the times that her mum can no longer cope but they leave her feeling sad and confused - even when she and her mum are being safely looked after at her Uncle Nod and Aunt Bertha's home on a remote island.

But, when Ailsa, accompanied by Uncle Nod's giant dog, comes across a tumbled down cave on the shoreline she makes an unexpected discovery. Who is the mysterious woman trapped down amongst the rocks?

Can Ailsa help to release her and how can her recovery help Ailsa's mother? Ailsa's discovery leads her to making a new friend and together the two girls revisit and repair family problems from the past.
